Potager Garden

2010 Excellence in Landscaping Award! By the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado.





The first step
was to prep the garden by pulling
out the old harvest, adding compost
and working the soil.

Second step

was to redefine the bed lines. This was accomplished by adding new steel edging which was framed out with buff flagstone.

Functionally this defined the beds and aesthetically added a more tradtional, formal look. Breeze was added for a firmer footing and less movement which was a problem with the pea gravel. This final addition was the perfect compliment to the buff flagstone edging creating a clean finished slate to work with.

Now, we're ready to plant

Symmetry is very important in a Potager garden.
The produce will be continually picked and annuals
and perennials cut for arrangements. Because of this, placement is everything. It is important to plant
material ensuring consistent bounty.

Once cool seasoned vegetables, like carrots, radishes
or lettuce are harvested they are replanted in the fall
for a second round of enjoyment. This keeps the
garden looking plentiful.

While planters add, height, color, and can be a stunning focal point
of any garden they can also have beneficial use as well. Planters can contain invasive herbs and annuals such as mint or Alyssum from spreading through out your garden.
